Лечение гриппа обходится в разы дороже вакцинации и может обернуться осложнениями - медик

Drugs for the treatment of viral diseases may have a negative impact on the condition of the internal organs and cause a number of side effects.

The correspondent of ГолосUA said the doctor, Victoria Savitskaya.

Since November in Ukraine will increase the incidence of acute respiratory infections, the flu will get to the regions a bit later, and initially, most likely, as occurs from year to year, the increase in the number of cases will occur very gradually, but since January is expected to accelerate this trend. The peak incidence, according to experts, planned in mid-January.

“Now it is time to decide whether you intend to get a flu shot. Vaccination can protect 60-80%, but an absolute guarantee that the virus to you will “snap” will not, but almost guaranteed to get rid of complications and facilitate the progress of the disease. It is also important that the vaccine is able to inhibit the spread of the virus in the country, that is, in fact, making a shot, you help not only yourself, but the people that frequent and close contact. The Ministry of health has promised to deliver the vaccine in the required volumes by the end of the month, but it is worth remembering that any drug must undergo a mandatory registration, and injections need only in medical centers and to purchase the vaccine either on site or in pharmacies, where guaranteed are not violated the conditions of storage of drugs” – said the expert.

The doctor could not name the exact cost of a flu shot, noting that prices will be announced when it arrives, but noted. That vaccination will cost much cheaper than buying drugs to treat.
